Living along the shore line of Atlantic City, NJ, Mrs. Luz found herself very much affected by Superstorm Sandy. Hearing that the Red Cross would be at the Baker Field Park distributing supplies such as food, cleaning kits, rakes, shovels and snacks for the kids, she immediately went, knowing the Red Cross wouldn’t let her down.
“I know we can count on the Red Cross,” she said. “Let’s go to the park and get some help.”
We will be changing our Disaster Online Newsroom format in the upcoming weeks (we will be rolling everything into a new webpage/format that will be easier to read/search). As part of the transition, we will be doing a weekly update (on Fridays) that will recap what disasters we're responding to across the country. Additionally, we will be posting any time sensitive disaster updates from our chapters. As part of the transition to our new Disaster format, we will not be regularly posting images or stories from the field - you can find those at .
